Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Pastrami?
Pastrami is a cured meat that is smoked. It is typically prepared with beef but can be made from pork or turkey.
Typically it is prepared steamed over a double boiler, but today we used our air fryer to prepare this easy air-fried sandwich.

Corned Beef is traditionally boiled for preparation while pastrami is smoked.
What Goes On Pastrami?
Typically you serve pastrami with a smear of mustard, either yellow or Dijon mustard. You can serve it with a topping of homemade coleslaw, or you can serve it with pickles.
Today, I added some texture to the sandwich by adding French Onions, which give a great crunchy texture to the sandwich.
What To Serve With Pastrami Sandwiches
What goes well with pastrami sandwiches? Pickles, of course! Sliced dill pickles or a mix of various types add a sharp, tangy flavor that pairs perfectly with salty pastrami. Likewise, mustard is a classic condiment for pastrami sandwiches. For a lighter option, try serving the sandwiches with coleslaw or thinly sliced cucumbers and onions.
Or, for a heartier meal, serve the sandwich on rye bread with sauerkraut on top. A side of potato salad or roasted potatoes also pairs nicely with pastrami sandwiches. Overall, the options are endless – just let your taste buds be your guide when choosing what to serve with your delicious pastrami sandwich
